Oh Hey!

calling all women raising teen girls

join our tribe

Hello you!

So glad you're here

My name is Marielle. I'm a life coach for teen girls, blogger, podcaster, islandgirl and global citizen.
 

I'll show you and your daughter how to embrace your whole imperfect self, let go of all the BS you tell yourself and to live with intention. It’s what I call badass living.
 

My mission is to build a community for women who want to raise independent, resilient and compassionate girls. The goal is to provide support, connection and inspiration. And to let you know you're not alone. Because it's not always easy raising a girl in this fast-paced, plugged-in world. So let's get together!

The Badass Girl

Manifesto

To me being badass means being real. Embracing who you are wholeheartedly - imperfections and all. It's living with passion and intention, knowing your boundaries and trusting your gut. Being brave enough to be vulnerable and leaning into discomfort because that's the way to grow and move forward.

Marielle and my daughter clicked instantly and my daughter felt Marielle really understood what she was going through. With Marielle’s creative but at the same time practical tips it didn't take long before we noticed a difference.

I can highly recommend Marielle to anyone with TCK's who are going through the motions that are so typical of a Third Culture Kid.

First and foremost, Marielle herself was key to the successful delivery of the program.  She was able to quickly develop a rapport with the students as her in-depth understanding of teenage development, academic and social pressures, and third culture kid experiences made her easy to talk to and helped students to feel understood.

I signed up for Mrs. Marielle's Group Coaching Program Stress-Management, Study- and Test Taking Skills so that I could cure my habit of procrastination and learn how to study more efficiently. It definitely worked and I can honestly say I am way less of a procrastinator now than I was before.
